LONGWOOD, Fla., Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Waste Pro has been named the fourth largest privately owned company in Central Florida, according to Orlando Business Journal's Golden 100 Companies with revenues of $510 million. The company has 2 million customers, 2,750 employees and more than 1,800 heavy trucks.
Waste Pro's growth and increased market share in eight Southeastern states was also recently recognized as part of Waste 360's 21st edition of their Industry Ranking. In its Annual Hauling & Disposal ranking, the Waste 100, Waste Pro is ranked number 11 among America's largest waste collection companies.
Waste Pro was founded in 2001 by John J. Jennings of Longwood who has built the company into the fastest growing in the United States. "Our goal is to be the best in service, equipment and team members. Our future is very bright," Jennings stated.
Private ownership makes Waste Pro particularly unique in its ability to expand operations and sustain consistent financial growth in a strategic and competitive manner. Waste Pro continues to demonstrate its commitment and economic impact within the region.
Waste Pro's position on the list this year is up two spots from that of last year. Publicly traded and privately held companies are ranked yearly according to revenue generation from the hauling and disposal of various types of solid waste and overall growth during 2013. Waste Pro is also listed as the 4th largest among privately owned hauling and disposal companies, also up from last year's position.
The overall growth of Waste Pro has been systematic and strategic, gaining market share throughout their Southeastern footprint, including the addition of more than 250,000 new residential customers, resulting in a revenue increase from $414 million in 2012 to $464 million in 2013. The increased recognition regionally and nationally positions Waste Pro well among the larger publicly held companies in the industry and further exemplifies the viability of its business model.
Waste Pro is one of this country's fastest growing privately owned waste collection, recycling, processing and disposal companies, operating in eight southeastern states. Serving more than two million residential and commercial customers from over 75 operating locations, Waste Pro is headquartered in Longwood, Florida, and maintains more than 178 exclusive municipal contracts and franchises.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
